Vibrant Downtown & Relaxing Waterfront Lifestyle

Where you live should be less about the physical place you reside in and more about the community as a whole. In 2011, for the first time in nearly a hundred years, the rate of urban population growth outpaced suburban growth, reversing a trend that held steady since the invention of the automobile. Why? Living in a “downtown” area is a more efficient way to live, i.e. walking and biking rather than driving, that appeals to both millennials and the more mature population.

Once a sleepy community, Downtown Melbourne has experienced a renaissance of sorts and is now itself becoming whole. While restaurants and nightlife have boomed – the opportunity to live within walking distance of these qualities has been limited. That is until now, with the construction of Crane Creek Landings. Located off East Melbourne Avenue, this exclusive, gated, waterfront townhome community allows quick access to everything the downtown area has to offer, plus the opportunity to enjoy tranquil activities like kayaking, paddleboarding and fishing along the Crane Creek.


For an area that has not seen new construction available to the public in over 20 years, Crane Creek Landings provides the chance to be a part of the revitalization. The townhomes offer quality of construction and design combined with the ideal location along the Crane Creek. Imagine a day of paddleboarding, kayaking and fishing, followed by an evening of fine dining, live music, entertainment and drinks with friends without the need to ever get into a car. Crane Creek Landings is within walking distance to all that Downtown Melbourne has to offer. Shopping, dining, entertainment, and professional services can be found lining the main street of East New Haven Avenue.

The 20 townhomes will be solid block (both floors) and foam insulation sprayed 100 percent throughout creating an incredibly energy efficient space. Impact resistant doors and windows mean no need for shutters, should a hurricane threaten the Space Coast. Customizable interior floor plans are available, each two story, 2,100 square-feet with three bedrooms and 2 ½ baths. Details like granite countertops, all wood custom cabinetry, 9-foot ceilings on both floors, and independent A/C units on each floor will offer luxury and comfort for residents. Oversized two-car garages offer plenty of room for the kayak or paddleboard. A unique aspect, the entrance for each garage will be located in the back of the buildings, creating a clean pristine look upon entering the community that is designed in the West Indies and Mediterranean style.

The architect for the project, MAI Design Build is locally owned and operated. The experienced team at MAI Design Build is responsible for over 500 landmark projects in the state of Florida. Residents will share a common dock within the community, providing the chance to easily enjoy the peace and tranquility of passing wildlife like manatees, dolphins and birds in a kayak or on a paddleboard, or lounge at the waterfront pool.

“The location combines luxury, security, lifestyle and fun,” said Garat Oates, broker/owner of Reliance Trust Realty, located in Downtown Melbourne, the brokerage offering Crane Creek Landings. Pre-construction choices are available and the property offer lots of value for buyers. Prices range from $379,000 to $439,000. Over half of the units have already been reserved.
